In or out? Wolff campaign material raises questions

Posted by on Tue, Oct 27, 2009 at 4:15 PM

Fliers paid for by the Kevin Wolff for Mayor Campaign popped up at Chapel Hill and Carrboro early voting sites this weekend, leading some to question if Wolff is still actively seeking office despite saying he's dropping out and others denouncing the material's anti-gay content.

On Monday, the fliers, which give a checklist comparing Wolff and competitors Matt Czajkowski and Mark Kleinschmidt, were gone at the Morehead Planetarium site, but a few soggy ones remained in a plastic bag attached to a Wolff campaign sign at Carrboro Town Hall. Among the differences, Wolff notes that unlike Kleinschmidt, one of five openly gay elected politicians in the state, he is not a "gay-rights activist" and "has children."

The fliers cite an Oct. 12 article in the News & Observer as evidence that Kleinschmidt is a gay-rights activist. Wolff announced his intention to drop out of the race on Oct. 15 at a candidate forum.

Steve Hill, who had served as a spokesman and campaign manager for Wolff said he is not working for the campaign any more and that the fliers "are not new."

Wolff has no comment, and has been silent since saying he planned to drop out, save for reiterating that "I said what I meant, and I meant what I said." Still, his signs still are prevalent.

He still has not submitted a formal notice to the Orange County Board of Elections to formally withdraw from the race. As such, he is not required to take down his signs until after the election. Competitor Augustus Cho posted on his blog that Wolff sent an e-mail to candidates asking them not to take down his signs.

In or out? No one is really sure. The strange saga of the Kevin Wolff campaign continues.
